Anderson wins National League North Player of the Month

Spennymoor Town midfielder Mark Anderson has swooped the National League North Player of the Month accolade for February.

Anderson, who has scored fourteen times this season, netted three times and claimed one assist during a prosperous month for himself and the team.

After scoring a late goal at Nuneaton Borough to seal three points at Liberty Way, the creative playmaker superbly struck from 25-yards to open the scoring at Altrincham three days later.

He assisted Rob Ramshaw for Moors’ second goal at The J.Davidson Stadium before scoring the winner at home to Leamington the following Saturday.

After collecting the award, Anderson said: “I heard the news Tuesday night before the game against Southport. I got the call to go along to the manager’s office which usually means I am not playing!

“It’s a great honour. All the other coaches around the league also congratulated me too.

“We had a quick chat about it then Tony Wilson came in and said a few words too. I obviously had to focus on the game, so I had to try and put it to the back of my mind.

Anderson scored three times and made one assist during February.

“I would pick the Altrincham game as a highlight from the month. I got the goal and the assist that night. It was a Tuesday game and the lads had been to work all day, so it was a bit of a trek.

“We knew how good Altrincham were and most of the lads agreed that they were probably the best team we have played this year, so to go down there on a Tuesday night and get the win was brilliant.

“For me to score one from outside the box and then set one up for Ramma after a tough opening 40 minutes. That would be my highlight from the month.”
